Enschede Kennispark is a railway station in Enschede, the Netherlands. The station was opened on 22 November 1996 and is located on the Zutphen–Glanerbeek railway. The train services are operated by Nederlandse Spoorwegen.

The station is directly next to the home stadium of FC Twente, de Grolsch Veste. The station is also used by university students, as it lies close to the campus of University of Twente.

The station was originally known as Enschede Drienerlo, named after the former Drienerlo estate, until it was renamed to Enschede Kennispark in 13 December 2015. This is to reflect the redevelopment of the area around the station into a science park. [1]
